Here at Osteofusion, we obtain the personal details of our patients in line with legal requirements when treating patients. We ask for contact details, medical history and any medications currently prescribed. This is necessary in order to thoroughly assess your health needs, for consultation purposes only, and to communicate with you over such matters.
We use Cliniko clinic software to record data, and it is retained securely on servers for 7 years after your last treatment (in accordance with UK law). Any paper copies of treatment notes or medical test results and any correspondence with other medical professionals are kept securely in locked cabinets in locked rooms and your computer records are password protected.
It is your right as patients of Osteofusion to view or ask about which data we hold about you and we will be as transparent as possible.
We retain your email address and ask permission, when taking it, to send you occasional newsletters regarding our business activities and how they may be of benefit to you as a patient. These emails may contain offers or health tips. We use MailChimp, whom provide mass mailing services and who fully comply with the new regulations.
We have never and do not pass your data on to any third parties for marketing purposes or otherwise.
If you have any questions regarding the above matters please let us know.
